Trivia

During the production of Used Cars (1980), Zemeckis and Gale had a production assistant named "Marty" (Martin Casella) whose name they then used for "Marty McFly".


Quotes

1985 Radio Announcer: October is inventory time, so right now, Statler Toyota is making the best deals of the year on all 1985-model Toyotas. You won't find a better car at a better price with better service anywhere in Hill Valley. That's Statler Toyota in downtown Hill...


Goofs

When Marty completes the improvised guitar ending for "Johnny B. Goode," he kicks over the guitar amplifier. The amplifier makes the electronic "splash" sound like a guitar amplifier that has a reverb tank. Guitarist Dick Dale and Leo Fender developed the first prototype reverb unit in 1961. Fender's Fender Musical Instruments Corp. introduced the first reverb units in 1962, seven years after the dance, which takes place in 1955.


Crazy Credits

The character Marty McFly is credited as a performer on the song "Johnny B. Goode". It is actually sung by Mark Campbell with a guitar solo by Tim May.


Alternate Versions

The 2010 (25th Anniversary) Blu-ray and DVD uses very distorted and incorrectly transferred end credits. All previous versions, including the 2002 trilogy DVD and its single-movie reissue, present the credits properly.
